2021 Ineos Grenadier: rugged 4×4 previewed in official video


Prototype vehicles shown tacking rough terrain as video gives a closer look at ladder frame chassis

Ineos has previewed the upcoming Grenadier 4×4 ahead of its official unveiling next year.

In the first of a series of behind-the-scenes videos released on the Ineos website that’s set to culminate in a full debut for the rugged 4×4, viewers are given an in-depth look at the Grenadier’s box-section ladder frame chassis and beam-axle front and rear suspension. Both have long been staples of dedicated off-road vehicles, and Ineos is looking to continue that tradition.

“A ladder frame is the only way to build a proper off-road vehicle 4×4,” chief engineer for vehicle integration Andreas Albrecht said. “We are not using a monocoque, because we are not building an SUV.”

The video is also interspersed with vehicles tackling rough terrain across the globe. The first-generation Land Rover Discovery, which also sat atop a ladder chassis and used beam axles, appears to show much influence on the Grenadier’s development.

Future videos in the series are set to focus on the car’s suspension, engine, transmission, body and interior before the finished model is revealed.

The first car built by the British company, owned by chemicals magnate Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the Grenadier is set to be an uncompromised off-roader in the mould of the original Land Rover Defender. 

Ineos has already confirmed that the Grenadier will use BMW‘s latest 3.0-litre straight-six petrol and diesel engines and will be manufactured at a new factory in Bridgend, Wales.

Engineering firm Magna Steyr, responsible for producing the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, Jaguar I-Pace and Toyota GR Supra, will assist in bringing the 4×4 to series production.

The Grenadier is set to go on sale to customers in 2021.
